fascinating is that we came across was, romney had a mormon documentarian follow him around in the campaign. he was a friend of one of the romney sons. he had great access. he made a documentary about from the -- romney. in 2010, he showed it to the family, they love it. the staff said, we are not going to show this to the republic -- to the public. they thought it showed too much of him talking about made a docm his mormon faith in a way that they feared could turn off the public, which has some misconceptions about that faith. to me, that captured the attention in the romney campaign. the staff never wanted to talk about the candidate. they wanted to make it about obama and his handling of the economy. ultimately, that a lot obama and his campaign to define mitt romney and his campaign. host: and yet, he did talk about his mormon faith at the convention. other members that spoke about mitt romney, but that only happened at the convention. it did not happen in 30-second spots. did not move much beyond that. guest: the obama campaign did not understand what they were up to. they did not ant
the videotape of mr. romney talking about the 47%. he showed an insight into the candidate. host: why is he a hero? caller: he had the courage to share with others. host: anybody else in congress or in texas? caller: i thought that mr. paul was a class act. host: that was tom from texas. tell us about your political hero. e-mail and twitter. give us a call, 202-585-3881 for republicans. 202-585-3880 for democrats. they all start with 202 area codes. a lot of comments on facebook and twitter. this comes from twitter. host: she only has 140 characters. wendy from oakland, new jersey. go ahead. caller: hi. i believe the political hero should be hillary clinton. host: why is that? caller: she has kept peace around the world. she has been able to focus on the problems here in america while she is done a tremendous job overseas. host: what would you like to see out of there? caller: become the next president of united states. i think it is a strong possibility. you mentioned travel and keeping people safe. any specific accomplishment that sticks out in your mind? caller: meeting with the pakistan
candidate for america. >> what if mitt romney isn't the best person? >> the idea that somehow making a business profitable is different than helping people. >> it's ridiculous for people to purchase a gun. >> did you get up this morning and have a quick -- >> i probably did, i probably did. >> "piers morgan tonight: the newsmakers" starts now. >>> good evening. one of the great things about my job is that every night i get to sit down with movers and shakers, the men and women at the center of the biggest stories of the year. what do they have in common? they're all utterly fascinating. tonight you'll hear from some of my favorite guests. we'll begin with the big man himself, governor chris christie. he found himself in a bit of hot water for making nice with president obama in the wake of hurricane sandy. >> 2.8 million people without power. i've watched these extraordinary scenes over new jersey today, really quite unprecedented. i've never seen anything quite like it. have you ever seen anything like this in your lifetime? >> no, i haven't. you know, you see sights like the seasi
this would not be happening? mitt romney had won in november. right, because when g.o.p. is in the white house, deficits don't matter. can you tell us a little bit about the philosophies of the two candidates? well now, the president and the ex-candidate. will the situation be that much different if there was a different man in the white house? guest: well, look, it's an interesting question. it is certainly true that tax policy was one of the key sort of issues in the last election. and actually, the debate that we're having if it sounds familiar, it's because we've had it several times before. it was really a similar debate to what we had in 2008. we had the same debate in 2010. we had a similar debate in 2011 when we were dealing with the debt ceiling issue the first time around. and we dealt it with it in the last election. and the differences have always been that president obama has maintained that tax cuts should be allowed to expire for people making more than $250,000. mitt romney called for extending all the tax cuts fully. and making other changes to the tax code. but, you kno
and the election hangover. new comments from one of mitt romney's sons that you might describe as puzzling. what do they really mean? and the gun battle rages on. new reports on why nothing may get done even after the sandy hook tragedy. >>> a massive tax hike and spending cuts -- republicans and democrats continue to point fingers in opposite directions, hinting that talks could go into the new year. >> are we going over the cliff? >> i believe we are, and i think the president is eager to go over the cliff for political purposes. he senses a victory at the bottom of the cliff. >> we only have nine days left here. when are we going to get serious about actual solutions? i would welcome john to tell me. he says he wants a solution. give us one, john. >> meanwhile, president obama is spending christmas in hawaii where he and the first lady attended the holiday memorial service for the late u.s. senator from daniel inouye. >> white house correspondent kristen welker. kristen, obviously they always say the white house travels with the president wherever he is. that's where the white house is. the pres
eventually cleared the field and romney set his sights on the president. >> it's still about the economy. and we're not stupid. >> reporter: at number nine, bang. >> your punishment must be more severe. >> reporter: not that one, that one. almost as soon as mitt romney locked up the nomination, bane capital was savaged by democratic superpacs and the obama campaign. >> like a vampire. sucking the life out of us. >> reporter: the attack ads put romney on defense for months. >> there's nothing wrong with being associated with bane capital for months. >> reporter: the president also got a lift from the supreme court which at number eight upheld his embattled health care law, so romney vowed to strike it down himself. >> i'm that one that's going to get rid of obama care. >> reporter: number seven, gas. >> governor romney, do you feel your gaffes have overshadowed your trip? >> reporter: his missteps often dominated the news cycle. >> the private sector is doing fine. >> reporter: or in romney's campaign, his entire foreign trip. ub at six, the conventions were remembered less for the nomine
. no one saw this coming. some post election comments from inside mitt romney's family, the comments raising a lot of political eyebrows. his son gave an interview to "the boston globe," the newspaper, and unexpected is definitely the word. we'll get into that coming up in just a second. >>> also coming up, the controversial call on "wheel of fortune" that has viewers and a contestant expressing outrage. hear what happened during a final round of the game show that led to disappointment, to say the least. it all has to do with how you pronounce a word. >> being punished for her southern accent. i don't like that. i think she has a legit case. >>> coming up later, the hollywood heartbreak story that won't reach its final chapter. demi moore's latest divorce demand from ashton kutcher. quite an eye opener. details on that and much more celebrity goodness cominup. stay tuned for that. >>> but first, hundreds of people held a candle light vigil on new york's brooklyn bridge in honor of those who died in the connecticut school shooting. >> the names of the victims were read aloud at the c
on the planet? >> i was at the romney headquarters election night and when they learned he wasn't going to be president of the united states, he looked sad. he looked like somebody that really wanted this and it was not going to be. so just seeing the reaction and everything that went to it. and tag said that ann tried to convince him of this, too. >> you have to wonder, did he really not -- he could have made choices and said i'm not going to do it. but you have to wonder did he not want to do it or is this kind of, you know, post election -- like i didn't want it any way. i'm brushing it off. i don't know how to interpret that, but interesting article in "the globe." >>> in other news today, a veteran idaho lawmaker is apologizing after being arrested for dui in washington. virginia police say republican mike crepo had a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit. >>> former president george h.w. bush may be spending christmas in the hospital. doctors say he's in stable condition but needs to build up his energy. >>> christmas prayers are going out to nelson mandela. south africans are
just heard a newsletter, which said the r. word is not romney, it is republican. this is about a party that is still to become a modern, effective party. part of the answer is suggested the republican national committee works to create a set of debates hosted by the republicans do we tell the media, why would you want -- i participated in the head every time here at the reagan library, but the truth is you ended up in the reagan library with one of the examples. left-wing moderators did their centrist because everybody they know us to their left. [laughter] these are not people who are biased. they represent the center for america because every round they go to cocktail parties at this literally got far to the left. so if you were to go back and analyze questions were putting together right now fascinating case study, which some of you will remember richard stephanopoulos asked this question about the 1963 tidwell versus connecticut supreme court suit involving contraception. i guarantee you, because i was there. every republican candidate and a debate has gone what? relearned a few we
again. if we are not growing, then the people in charge aren't doing their jobs. mitt romney made his argument in an explicit part of his campaign. >> economic growth this year slower than last year and last year slower than the year before. going with the status quo is not going to cut it for the people who are struggling today. >> that presupposes that growth and faster growth is a good thing. since the dawn of modern capital lich ism, be they have pondered whether it's even desirable. prominent voices are revisiting those debates asking, is growth necessarily good and is a happy sustainable future with broadly and equitably distributed profitable? joining us to answer those questions is christian pa are renti, contributing editor to "the nation" and chrystia freeland, author of "plutocrat." >> partly because women aren't having so many kids anymore. i mean, pretty soon we're going to be talking about, you know, demographic winter. >> we're talking about that now. >> and one of the things that was assumed, when you're thinking about growth in the future, is assuming what will contin
this a referendum about his opponent, mitt romney. so if you went out and you asked most americans, do you think barack obama did a great job in his first term? do you want significantly higher taxes? do you want the government to do nothing about spending? are you happy with obamacare? most would say no, but in the end the choice was between a president who said things aren't great, but i'm still going to try to make them better and a guy he painted as not having a plan and not identifying with the average wants and needs of middle class americans and in the end, people decided to stick with the devil they knew rather than the one they didn't. >> paul: so the election, the republican defeat was big, but it wasn't overwhelming in a sense of repudiation, kim, as far as a republican platform and their agenda? >> no, i think the reason, look, this country had the opportunity in this election to once again hand completely controlled government to democrats. everyone in the house was up for reelection and yet, they continued to give republicans, majority there. they liked divided government and i thi
it a race riot, racist riot occurring by the -- well, it was not that. anti-obama students, pro-romney students came out onto the campus and demonstrated. the right, they can do that against the results of the election, and a handful of students were screaming out racial slurs. putting that in context, then the next day three times that amount of people showed up for a candlelighter is mopeny protesting the -- ceremony, protesting the incident the night before. so mississippi was, mississippi is. it's moving on. but, yes, you're right. there's more and more that should come out and talk about it. so you can get a balanced picture that their view of the south may not be the correct view today. it's not just a bunch of rioters throwing bricks. thank you. john. >> henry, can you talk a little more about the special security detail that you had following, you know, your initial -- >> sure. >> -- and how were, i assume you were just chosen for that, but was there -- do you know why you were chosen for that? >> well, i'd gone through the -- >> how did it end? >> yeah, yeah, thank you. i was
-- mormon, as far as romney, it does not influence. but to judge in the fruits of the politicians we are voting on, that is what we should look at. i would say, yes, religion guides my life, so it will guide my choices. i judge of the fruits of those politicians. like the one gentleman earlier was saying about people who are only worried about the rich. that is not in the bible. thanks, greta, and thanks for c- span. host: republican caller. mississippi. caller: i am a religious person and i have been my whole life. when of the greatest people i watch on television is david jeremiah. but my religion has always taught me that we have to take care of each other. i am a retired firefighter. i say that after jesus christ, firefighters love you the most because they are willing to sacrifice your life. but in this world, we have succumbed to the love of money, which is the root of all evil. rather than listen to answers that i think are given to us, we love money so much that we turn to try and keep all that we can for ourselves. we talk about the fiscal cliff. the fiscal cliff as far as i
presidential candidate mitt romney. >> this election is over. but our principles endure. >> romney ran on his impressive business credentials but it was his multiple gaffes during the campaign that analysts say helped seal his fate. remember the 47% comments. >> 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government. >> and this one -- >> binders full of women. >> number six, ex-cia director general david petraeus. >> breaking news now coming in regarding the chief of the cia, general david petraeus. >> general petraeus, can you talk with us, please? >> the news was unexpected. the reason, shocking. petraeus, a retired four-star general, had quit his cia post and admitted he had cheated on his wife. petraeus' mistress was also his biographer, paula broadwell, an embarrassing exit from the public stage by one of the most respected public servants of his time. >> number five, super jumper felix bum gartner. let's face it, he did what no human has ever done, diving 24 miles from the edge of space, breaking the sound barrier along the way. >> i'm still the same guy. but as soon as you start trav

and i apologize. but everybody knows mitt romney is having a rough time as a presidential candidate but a sentence that i have not heard uttered anywhere is the only donald trump had been the nominee. because he built this idea that barack obama was built in kenya other than the united states. but that campaign did not take off exactly. mitt romney is there for better or worse. when barack obama's parents got married in 1960, and it wasn't kenya, i'm sorry, it was in hawaii, they got married in hawaii and there were people in prison in this country for racial intermarriage. so just give you an idea of how much the country has changed in a good way. but right after richard nixon became president, for vacancies appeared on the supreme court. jimmy carter is the only president in american history but to the full term without a single they consider greater richard nixon was only president for five years and he had to leave early, remember? [applause] but he got four appointments to the supreme court. they were replaced by richard nixon with chief justice warren burger. blackmun, and wil
enthusiasm level for mid-run as a candidate? >> well, i think -- mitt romney as a candidate. >> i think he's going to be a very good president. i think he gets it, and i think he is moving forward, and they think he is saying some things that we need to hear. >> you mentioned a new book coming out. what was the title of the? >> the new book coming out is freedom manifesto, why free markets are moral and big government isn't spent that's another book written by you and steve forbes? >> yes, it is. >> we've got it over here. >> it's a little card. >> you've got your back over there. we want to show you the current book while she fishes that out. "how capitalism will save us," and here is the new book by elizabeth ames and steve forbes, freedom manifesto, and the subtitle is -- >> why free markets are moral and big government isn't. spent why is it big government moral? >> because big government makes decisions and takes action based on political agendas, based on selfish political agendas but it's about meeting its own political selfish needs, and free markets are meeting the real-world need
for obama. if you look at regional politics, white women overwhelmingly voted for mitt romney. white women in the south were the ones voting for mitt romney. white women in the northeast were voting for obama. that's actually why -- so there is absolutely, a racial -- a nonracialized yesterday logical divide among why this. i think that's -- we always focus on what's going on idealogically with people of color. what about white people? >> this is the key thing. when you start slicing and dicing the data and look at exit polling data and we have the categories that are fixed in hour head to look for, african-american and white and we find the divisions, nothing ever jumps out at me more than the regional difference. when you break the country up into regions you have one yooisht lier. the south. the south has different politics than the rest of the country and i think eye guys would agree with that. >> the south is culturally conservative i would argue. and i think that that's what makes georgia a difficult state for democrats regardless of race. and i think it's also what provides an oppor
obama and romney it was about capitalism. and what kind of role government having a live. >> #1 is the fiscal cliff. lawmakers start coming to the not bother to pay any attention to it until after the election. had they put politics aside and dealt with the earlier who knows how strong the u.s. economy would be right now. >> 9 4:01 a.m. we will be back with more in a couple of minutes. less than a live look outside. sunshine never were including marijuana of crete. seven on 680 is nice in light. >> we are here from 4 to 10. at 10:00 is dr. field every day here on the kron 4 station on the kron 4 morning lows. we are followed by dr. philip welcome back to the kron 4 morning news. >> the country is inching closer to the falling of the so-called fiscal cliff. a series of tax hikes and spending cuts to take effect in five days. >> house and senate members are expected to reconvene today as well. without a budget agreement, automatic tax increase for everyone in the spending cuts will be triggered and the new year. >> taxes go up if congress does not act. >> former president a w. bus
a million to the romney campaign and 9 million to obama's superpac. >> right, look, that's absolutely right. to put it in perspective, that's multiples of the amount of gun manufacturers, getting a lot of unwelcome press, have contributed to republicans. this is one of the biggest single sectors in donations to the democratic party. this is a pillar of democratic party fund raising, the entertainment business, in fact, number one donation to obama's super pac in the last cycle. maybe it's not surprising that the president has essentially ignored the potential effect of hollywood on our attitudes about violence, but it seems to me, any person who is looking at this honestly will reach a conclusion, yeah, we should figure out is there a connection? >> a good thing we're talking about all of these topics today. turker carlson, talk to you soon. >> thanks. >> dave: when we come back, the girl scouts are here with very special songs for christmas. ♪ we wish you a merry christmas ♪ ♪ we wish you a merry christmas ♪ ♪ we wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year ♪ [ male announce
campaign, mitt romney kept saying this country could be on the road to being more like increase if we didn't get out from the country and also the unemployment rate remains high in this country. are you optimistic in the short term about the country's future? >> it's hard to beat. i try to be. the reason i try to be is i think that if we can get this resolved, the fiscal cliff situation resolved and have a pathway to see the deficit being reduced, can do it overnight, which we could. but if we can see there is a have come a trajectory of slowing down the growth in spending to the point that you can see the deficit will ultimately go away over a reasonable period of time and the business would start investing again i think you will start hiring again and i spoke to a business group yesterday and i asked them if they would hire because they got a tax credit for hiring people if we get this under control so we are not talking about greece and we are not talking ourselves to death. the fiscal sanity then yes, why, because we have markets for products and services i predicted at that point that
is is it all necessary or necessary to be done that way. >> mitt romney kept saying this country could be on the road to be more like greece if we did not get our arms around it. the unemployment rate remains high. are you optimistic in the short term about our country's future. >> it is hard to be. i tried to be. if we can get this resolved, this fiscal cliff situation, and have a pathway to seeing the deficit be reduced, cannot do it overnight, if we can see there is a path, a trajectory of slowing down the growth of spending to the point you can see the deficit will ultimately go away over a reasonable time, people will start investing again, hiring again, and i spoke to a business group yesterday and asked if they would hire just because they get a tax credit for hiring people. they said no. if you see the deficit will go away and there is hope we are on the right path to fiscal sanity, will you then hired? yes. we will have markets for our products and services and then we will need more people. we are stuck right now because all we have done for a year and a half was kick the can
